- Find or make charging station
Finally last night, hubs and I drew up a few ideas on what we wanted it to look like and what it needs to do. The primary purpose, obviously, is to hold a power bar and several power cords for our various electronic devices: 2 cell phones for hubs, 1 cell phone for me, and 1 ipod charger (and we'll alternate who needs charging). In order to cut down on clutter though, I thought it would be nice to use this station as a place to store mail and pens and what not since that's where they end up anyways.
Here are a few retail versions that gave me the idea of a charging station (and that such a thing even existed):
Then...last week, I came across the Ikea Hacker blog and saw this:
So meld all those ideas together along with our specific needs and here are our respective designs:
Here's my ideas, which I had to transplant into paint because I'm terrible at drawing what I mean with any sort of spacial reasoning:
And here's hubs' scanned design, because he's pretty much good at everything and must have been an architect in another life or something:
So my self-appointed project (although--who else cares enough to appoint it?) for the weekend is the charging station.
Any tips or other ideas before I impulsively start cutting and drilling?
